Shops that stock independent local labels in tandem with mainstream brands receive brownie points from me. Local Derby, my new-found treasure on Newtown’s iconic King Street Strip, sell the cutest, funkiest and most unusual accessories I’ve seen in a while. I’m fond of the quirky jewellery by Kristy’s Jewels and the more renowned Icon Brand’s pieces, in particular. But sorry kids, I already acquired that Hail Mary Ring.
